Europe - Couple - Love

These are the places I would go if I only had 1 month to travel through Europe.  I’ll tell you where to go, how long to stay, what not to miss, and how to get to each city.  This is a great guide for people new to Europe and it should give you a good basis from which to plan your trip.

I’m going to tell you about the cheapest reliable way to travel last minute throughout Europe.  I travel A LOT through Europe and I usually do everything last-minute.  Here, I’ll share with you what I do to get the cheapest transportation options and which websites I use.  This is perfect for those travelers that don’t like to make a final decision until the day before departure – like me. 🙂

Me - Dublin to London (Holyhead) Ferry

Me – Dublin to London (Holyhead) Ferry

The other day I decided that I wanted to drop by London for a week or two; it is such a nice luxury to be able to do this.  But, if you are in Dublin, Ireland, it is really no luxury at all.  There are a number of ways to get to London from Dublin and they don’t cost much at all.

I will talk about how I took the ferry and train to get to London from Dublin and then I’ll cover the other two typical ways to make this journey.  As well, I will give you links to all of the websites needed to book your tickets and get more information.  Aren’t I nice 😀

Most people will be traveling early or mid-day on the 6th day.  As such, you probably won’t be doing much on this day.  However, if you have some time, there are always many nice things to do.

In the past 5 days, you will have seen the major attractions in Paris, but you will have by no means seen everything.  To see everything, you need two weeks to a month in Paris.

Below, I will mention a few other fun things to do, according to me. 🙂

6 Days in Paris – Day 5: Notre Dame, Musee d’Orsay, Eiffel Tower

 Europe, France, Paris  Comments Off on 6 Days in Paris – Day 5: Notre Dame, Musee d’Orsay, Eiffel Tower
Feb 172013

This will most likely be the last of the big ‘tourism’ days for you in Paris.  This will be the last full day that you have to experience everything that Paris has to offer.  As such, let’s start with the Notre Dame Cathedral; after that, we will move on to the Musee d’Orsay, a museum that is overshadowed by the Louvre but significantly more enjoyable than the Louvre (I’ll tell you why below); then, what would a trip to Paris be like if we did not go to the Eiffel Tower?!

Today will be a pleasant day that you can take at a nice slow pace after Versailles and it should leave you feeling satisfied that you have seen many of the amazing treats that Paris has to offer.

Let’s begin 🙂

Hopefully, you are rested up from yesterday!  Today will be an all-day affair that will saturate you with opulence and, most likely, too many other tourists ;).  Today, you will go to the Palace of Versailles.  Now, to avoid the tourists, you will have to get up early.

It will be worth it to see the magnificent creation that is the Palace of Versailles, which includes the main building (Palace), a garden that is better described as a controlled forest full of hidden fountains and paths, as well as the Grand Trianon, and Marie Antoinette’s Estate.

This will be an all day affair.

Day three in Paris will be a relatively relaxing day where you can really move at your own pace.  You will be seeing some sites near Montmartre and then off for a nice roof-top lunch, some shopping, and a nice evening around the Opera (or at the Opera if you buy some tickets 🙂 ).

Let’s begin this day with a nice ‘relaxing’ ride on the metro.

This is going to be a big day!  So, make sure to get a big breakfast.  A croissant and coffee will NOT do.  If you want to ‘experience culture’ then, sure, have that, but make sure to fill up on some real food (eggs, bacon, potatoes, beans if you’re from the U.K. and Ireland, etc.).  If you don’t fill-up now, you will pay a fortune to eat in or near the Louvre or really any of the attractions that you will be seeing today.

So, let us get started!
